"Mnangagwa Is Simply A Scarfed Robert Mugabe" - MDC Spokesperson

Opposition Deputy Spokesperson, Luke Tamborinyoka has claimed that there was no difference between president Emmerson Mnangagwa and his predecessor, Robert Mugabe.

Tamborinyoka cited the shrinking democratic space since the ascendancy of Mnangagwa to power in 2017. Tamborinyoka said:

It (the repression) confirms the de facto state of emergency in the country. Mnangagwa has just mounted a second coup on the Constitution of Zimbabwe.

This is a continuation of the First Republic. Mnangagwa is simply a scarfed Robert Mugabe, which is why we are saying that with these sanctions that ED has imposed on Zimbabwe, Sadc should understand that there is a siege in Zimbabwe.

His remarks come when reports of abductions of MDC members and human rights defenders have been increasing lately.

The latest report is that of Bustop TV comedienne, Samantha Kureya whose stage name is Gonyeti. Reports suggest that she was abducted at her home by masked and armed men who claimed to be soldiers.

They assaulted her family members before abducting her. They reportedly forced her to strip naked before assaulting her and forcing her to drink sewer.

Observers have implicated the government in the violations against human rights saying that the victims were government critics.

The government has however said that there is a third hand behind the abductions. It also says that some of the “so-called” abductions, including that of Gonyeti, were being stage managed.
